My internal alarm clock worked against me this morning, but I was happy to start the day a little early in hopes of beating some of the heat. I got dishes done and a few thing cleaned up and in the afternoon I was off on a hike. The only trail that was packed to a miserable degree was the one along the water, so I spent most of my time happily in the woods. Before I had gone a mile I was dripping with sweat, but I was loving every second of it. There really is something wonderful about enjoying the fresh air and watching the sun shine though the trees.
Hopefully there will be more time outside and hikes on this vacation. After all, that was one of the reasons I took the time off.
Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
